Chemical Inventory

Individual in control of chemicals used in research on campus should maintain an accurate chemical inventory in order to minimize waste, track reporting limits, and comply with hazard communication laws. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety manages the chemical inventory software, ChemInventory, for the university and conducts annual reconciliation procedures. If you would like to have an account made, or if you need chemical inventory supplies (e.g., scanner and barcodes), contact the EH&S office for assistance.
